About The HPW Foundation:
Don Walston, one of Coldwell Banker Howard Perry and Walston’s founders, formed the HPW Foundation in the late 1990’s so that sales associates and employees could have a forum, through the company, for serving the communities in which they live. Since its inception, the HPW Foundation has given more than $688,000 to local, not-for-profit organizations to benefit countless individuals throughout the Triangle. Recipients include Habitat for Humanity, Susan G. Komen Breast Cancer Foundation, The Frankie Lemmon Foundation, Special Olympics North Carolina, The MeFine Foundation and Second Chance Pet Adoptions. In addition to charitable and non-profit organizations, the HPW Foundation makes donations as needs occur. Funds have been contributed to assist families affected by devastation from natural disasters, including the excessive hurricane and flood damage that has affected our state in recent years.
